=//= •Another art request• =//= How awesome is that!?
Looking for: Interesting art - and good prices. No Bribes. No Auctions. No RL Commissions right now**
Current funds: •PENDING•
**You can post your DA/Tumblr/etc and I will follow/watch you for when I have the funds**
My birthday is coming up on the 18th of September! I'm not asking for freebies but -anything, no matter how small or simple for my birthday would be super awesome! Even just a happy birthday bump would be epic cat_smile
• No Bribes. Sorry, I don't have the time/patience to figure out what makes a good bribe. Defined prices please. If I really like your art, I often splurge/tip/and become a recurring customer. Just a hint.
• No Auctions. I've never participated in one and I don't plan on starting.
• RL Commissions. I usually prefer these to be quite honest. My finances are a bit tight right now so I won't be buying anything. However, I love supporting artists, through DA, Tumblr, or otherwise. So even if I can't afford you right now, I'll watch/follow! <3
• Relevant/Recent samples only. Show me a DevArt, or a gallery or something that is somewhat recent. I don't want to see art you did two years ago for something.
• Not an artist? Chat with me, come check out my ROLEPLAY or follow me on TUMBLR, or yeah whatever.
SO I want art of my OCs. Just random drawings, pictures, chibis, whatev. Just draw for me yeah?
Honestly, I get so bored with perusing art shops in the forums because I have a very short attention span and just don't have the patience for it.
I'm picky. Lemme just put that out there right now. I'm kinda picky about style, anatomy, accuracy of characters, and of course the price vs quality. Don't be offended if I should turn you away. It does not mean you aren't a good artist, just not what I want. So enough rambling. See the posts below for all of my characters:
Keep in mind some of these gals only have a select few references, but in that thread is all 8 of my creations. The final two need some major reworking so please don't worry about them right now. I would prefer art of those in need of references but will not turn down a really great offer for one who has more.
So I figured this is a good a place as any to post random stuff not relevant to the art/thread and maybe stuff for us to chat about while waiting or whatever. Feel free to discuss anything you see here!
• I am a roleplayer. All of these characters were created for roleplaying (not stories) and for any fellow roleplayers, feel free to check out My current project. It's where I pretty much spend all my Gaia time.
• I have a newfound love for Tumblr. Feel free to stalk me and share whatever. I follow a few tags, mainly stuff about Yogscast, and some other stuff along with a few friends' blogs.
• I have a DeviantArt and do some graphic design stuff on the side. Most of what's in my gallery is old and meh. I'll update it sometime when I feel less lazy and get the art bug again.
• My current obsessions are: Yogscast (google it if you don't know who they are). Minecraft. Revenge (tv show on ABC), my roleplay, and Lindsey Stirling (who you should also google bee-tee-dubs) among other things. Idunno pick a topic.
This is where I will include any characters that are not my own, for whom I would like to help get art for. They will either be characters belonging to my husband, or close friends - all of whom I roleplay with and either have interacted with story wise, or just enjoy.
Please take heed when drawing someone in this post as more often than not, the owners of these characters are just as picky, if not more so. Read description and details carefully and pay attention to the references.
COUPLE/GROUP ART ENCOURAGED AND DESIRED
Karos Arkenbout - Belongs to my husband (Cognitive Genome/Damnatus)
Appearance: When one speaks of mages, the first image that generally comes to mind are frail, reclusive and aloof figures that could blast someone to cinders while breaking in half against a light breeze. Karos Arkenbout goes against that perception, albeit not as much as he’d might like. The warlock is a tall, wiry individual, standing over many at a height of 6’1”; however, his less-than-stellar weight of 171lbs lends little to his stature, giving his figure a lean, lanky appearance. While his skin isn’t hardened and tanned like many adventurers, his repeated sojourns throughout the wide world have left a slightly browned hue to his flesh. Smiling comes easy to Karos, whether it’s to lure in a mark or because he generally feels like doing it. His features are neither strong or feminine, but the right kind of middle ground that makes his work and play easier – a pointed chin encircled with stubble, high cheek bones, a slightly-long nose and slender eyebrows that are naturally curved. His emerald eyes are sharp and focused, capable of expressing emotion as well as the rest of his face combined. A hexagram is tattooed around his right eye in blank ink, though Karos does not let people know that it is entirely for show alone. His dirty blonde hair, when actually cleaned, flows messily down to the end of his neck. Even when he does wash it, he never seems to be able to keep it in one place, as bangs often straggle and obscure his sight.
Unfortunately for the warlock, for all the things nature decided to bestow unto him, his poor money management skills have left his overall appearance in disarray. Detracting even more from this are the opulent rags that Karos wears. All of his clothing items are dirtied, worn and tattered to some extent, either brought upon by an angry customer or by his own careless hand. A dark brown waistcoat serves as his undershirt, missing buttons in some areas that are replaced with safety pins. A once-extravagant, silver-dyed wool coat, trimmed with threadbare gold embroidery, rests above it. The coat once possessed a flowing tail end; now, only a ragged hemline reveals that any such extension existed. Wool gloves – the same color of the coat – adorn his hands, though not his fingers, as they were torn away after losing one too many and thus created an abhorrent look. Wrapped about his waist is a ramshackle belt; tied to it are numerous pouches and sacks that contain his paltry reagents. His trousers are charcoal in color and are surprisingly in decent condition, which are tucked into a pair of brown, fold-over leather boots (though the right one happens to be missing its fold-over flap.)
As with every great mage throughout the annals of history, Karos carries with him a mighty staff; mighty, at least, in the sense that it could likely brain an ogre if its owner gave it a good swing. Its gnarled, winding appearance suggests it was either carefully-wrought from some massive oak, or it had simply fallen off of a diseased tree. A host of trinkets and fetishes hang from the thick, semi-splayed top, tied with strings and cords - a voodoo doll, a rusted pentagrammic amulet, several gems (some not even forgeries), feathers and even a desiccated, demonic claw.
Personality: Cocksure to a fault, Karos portrays himself as though he were a sorcerer-king when, in fact, he is something closer to a beggar king. The warlock possesses a sharp intellect, and an even sharper wit, both of which he has combined into a singular creation that allows him to relentlessly con hapless fools out of their hard-earned money. Of course, despite his actual, significant skill in the occult, he is prone to failure in these myriad false exorcisms, séances and other mystical activities, due to his less-than-stellar reputation among the infernal, abyssal and fair folk alike. Despite these, though, he endeavors ever onward, wholly confident that he is one step away from getting the perfect gig.
As one might expect from someone who dabbles in such matters, Karos is a man of vice. Women (and even attractive men) draw his eyes – and hands – in almost every occasion. He is a hopeless flirt and letch, though his combination of suaveness, confidence and looks (when he cleans himself up, that is), the warlock has lured many an individual between the sheets. In addition to this, he tends to indulge in drinking quite a bit, though not to the extent of alcoholism.
So, could anything be said good of the poor b*****d? When he moves past the idea of conning – and maybe even bedding – the persons he interacts with, he can be a surprisingly-loyal friend. He tries to brush it off, stating that he is just putting on a show to let their guard down, but in fact, it is he who has let his guard down. In whatever he puts before him, he attempts it with passion, finding failure to be despicable. Yet, for all the bad and good things that form such an eccentric character, there are hints of a more troubled side to the warlock that he keeps under more secrecy than the tricks of his trade. If one manages to look past the sharp smile in his emerald eyes, they could see a weariness that belies his outer years. The man has clearly experienced things that he believes are best left alone, and should one pry, he will make a stark, firm denial that often quells even the most inquisitive of spirits.
I decided I felt like showing off my latest commissions and freebies and what have you for the fun of it! I'll post up the pieces in spoiler tags (or maybe once it gets really big) along with the artist name so you guys can totally show them love!
Super awesome. I like the sound of that but I'm sure I'll love the outcome haha!
Anyone you're interested in more? Honestly, I could see you draw any of them, maybe with the exception of Lil but she's still very new and I have a fairly defined imaged of her in my head and she'll be hard to pin down I feel like. I wish I could draw. Would make it so easy to provide refs. Bah. D;

【--------- Maybe an actress or a model in mind for either of their face reference?? * - *)*+*+*+ I wanna try Lilith though and a only face ref i can think of for her is this ; w ; )9 --------- 】
